And the earth shall have it all
Oil on canvas
90 x 121cm
The idea for this painting was inspired by the Italian poet Cesare Pavese.
The earth does not see a uniform, or hear a soldier’s dying words.
It does not feel a mother’s grief or sense a family’s despair.
“Victory”, “Defeat” and “Country”, are muffled sounds scattered by the winds.
In the end, the earth will welcome us all.
